At UMS SKELDAR the Swiss headquarters and the Swedish subsidiary are both now relying on the MRO software. This enables close cooperation in the daily business with shared data and full transparency.
Besides the back office at UMS SKELDAR, the production staff members were especially looking forward to the switchover to AMOS, empowering them to work even more efficiently when having all required information at hand and from one single source.
In addition to the AMOS implementation, UMS SKELDAR also works in parallel for the ISO 9001 and AS 9100 certifications in spring 2017. The timing was of benefit as AMOS’ best-practice processes could be directly adopted and documented for the certification.
“UMS SKELDAR, as an OEM, is a unique customer in our portfolio. We congratulate them for the swift and ambitious implementation and would like to express once more our thanks for the trust placed in Swiss-AS and AMOS,” states Ronald Schaeuffele, CEO of Swiss-AS.
The OEM manages the upstream production process in AMOS to build the drones via use of connected AMOS modules Production, Engineering, Planning, Material Management, Component Maintenance and Finance. After build completion, the typical maintenance tasks for the drones are also executed in AMOS.
With the business scope of developing flying robot technologies for fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters, UMS SKELDAR is not a typical AMOS customer – however the fact that AMOS has been put into operation with only a very limited number of customisations emphasises the flexibility and rich functionality of the software product.
UMS SKELDAR AG, headquartered in Möhlin, Switzerland, is high-tech company which focuses on the development, production and distribution of small and medium sized Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) on a global scale. UMS SKELDAR AG has offices in Switzerland (UMS SKELDAR AG) and Sweden (UMS SKELDAR AB) and is jointly owned by Swiss based UMS Aero Group AG and Swedish Saab Group.
